Yes, I know my wmaker menus fairly well, but I bind hotkeys to everything
common... F9 for netscape, F10 to bring up an Eterm (What can I say?
I like the flashy stuff sometimes...), Windows-Z (a lot of apps like
to use Alt-foo themselves, so I've got all my wmaker hotkeys bound to
Windows-foo instead) to lock the screen, F12-Up-Right-Enter to log out,
F12-Down-Enter for GIMP. That's about all I ever use. (Anything else,
I start from an Eterm.)

Anyhow, the real reason for my reply: Why do you like WPrefs so much? I
used it initially, then discovered wmakerconf. At that point, there were
some things that could only be done in WPrefs, so I used both, but, IIRC,
wmakerconf now does everything that WPrefs does, plus quite a bit more.
